    Conservative David Frum loses think tank job after criticizing GOP


    Mr. 'Axis of Evil' himself fired. When you criticize the Empire it does strike back........
    Three days after calling health-care reform a debacle for Republicans, David Frum was forced out of his job at the American Enterprise Institute on Wednesday.

    The really tragic part of the article......
    Bruce Bartlett, another conservative scholar who has been at odds with the right, wrote that Frum told him AEI staffers "had been ordered not to speak to the media" about health care "because they agreed with too much of what Obama was trying to do.

    So actually this is why America Will Fall. Even when you agree you can't agree or else the light saber is drawn and you are eliminated and the cancer excised. I suppose the 'think tank' is really only interested in certain thoughts.

    Yes, they're trying to harvest a certain Andromeda Strain of political thought. Anything else is discarded.

    Absolute obedience to the leaders of the Party! No one ever leaves the KGB. I wonder how long before they realize they're just like the Imams in the Middle East who threaten fatwa and death against any who leave the faith.

    Blind obedience as the leaders drive them all off the cliff.

    And now they are in 'disarray'. They had hoped Obama was on Jimmy Carter Highway and instead he's on F.D.R. drive :wink: They had really bet the farm that defeating health care would permanently extinguish Obama's presidency and his agenda. And now they've lost it all.
